Tottenham vs Burnley Prediction & Match Preview

Tottenham

Burnley

28 February 2021 15:00 CET Premier League Tottenham Hotspur Stadium

Tottenham will be looking to make amends for a 2-1 loss to West Ham when they take on Burnley at their Tottenham Hotspur Stadium. 

Spurs impressed in the first half of the season, but, all of a sudden, they suffered a dip in form. 

The capital club have been slipping down the standings week by week, but a win over Burnley will see Jose Mourinho’s troops keep their Champions League hopes alive.

After resting several first-team regulars in the Europa League clash against Wolfsberger, Mourinho is going to field the best possible side against Burnley. 

Aurier and Lo Celso should be the only absentees in the home team. The Clarets, on the other hand, are six points clear of the relegation zone. 

The Turf Moor outfit are on a four-game unbeaten run in the Premier League, but given the importance of Sunday’s clash for Spurs, home win should be considered.

Team News:

Tottenham will only be missing one player for Sunday's clash, with Giovani Lo Celso still unavailable for selection despite the fact that the Argentine has made strong progress in his recovery from a thigh issue.

Serge Aurier is fit following a calf problem, and the Ivory Coast international is expected to return to the team at right-back, while there could be a starting role for Dele Alli, who impressed against Wolfsberger.

Gareth Bale's absence from the starting XI on Thursday suggests that the Wales international could be handed a spot in the side here, joining the likes of Harry Kane and Son Heung-min in attack, while Toby Alderweireld might get the nod alongside Eric Dier in the heart of the defence.

As for Burnley, Chris Wood is in contention to start, having returned to training following a hamstring problem, while Jay Rodriguez should be available despite suffering a knock against West Brom last time out.

Ashley Barnes and Johann Berg Gudmundsson are definitely out, while Robbie Brady and Erik Pieters are also doubts for the trip to the English capital.

Dyche is expected to keep faith with the majority of the side that started against West Brom, with Wood for Matej Vydra potentially the only change to the starting XI.

Tottenham Hotspur possible starting lineup:
Lloris; Aurier, Alderweireld, Dier, Reguilon; Hojbjerg, Ndombele; Son, Dele, Bale; Kane
